Thrush and bacterial vaginitis appear regularly. I used the advertised Pimafucin, but the unpleasant symptoms recede only for a while. I passed additional tests and prescribed these pills. I noticed an improvement in her condition already on the 3rd day. The full course lasted 10 days. Six months have passed since the end of therapy, and there has been no relapse of the disease.

For the treatment of colpitis, Trichopol was prescribed, but side effects appeared. I had to cancel therapy and deal with unwanted changes. After that, this drug was prescribed. I noticed only a positive result of therapy, no side reactions occurred. A cheap and effective remedy that helped to cope with the symptoms of the disease in just 3 days.

Leonid, 24 years old, Omsk
The drug was prescribed by a dermatologist for the treatment of profuse acne. It took 3 courses (each lasted 10 days), between which we had to endure a break of 10 days. It was not possible to take pills with food or drink milk, because severe nausea immediately developed. But when taken half an hour after eating, no discomfort did not appear. After the completion of the third course, there was a slight discomfort when making sudden movements, but everything went away on its own within 2 days after the drug was discontinued.

The medicine helped to cope not only with acne, but also with gastritis (complex treatment). For a small price, it was possible to solve 2 problems at once without the development of side reactions. I recommend this tool to everyone.
